I love photographing kiddos,
They say funny things,
They do funny things,
They like dance parties,
Tight squeezes, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sounds like great entertainment to me. And I get to do what I love. Bonus
What’s your favorite “ordinary family” activity to do together?
Hey Mama Bear, I'd love to know - do you actively bond with the growing baby in your belly?🤰💕 You might be surprised to know every day tasks you do are actually bonding time, or you might specifically make time.
Some great bonding activities include..
💕 massaging or rubbing your belly - also a great time to be rubbing cream or oil on your belly
💕 talking or singing to baby - get your partner to read a story to baby to get them involved too
💕 taking photos of your bump - such a wonderful visual diary of this magical time
💕 Practicing your Hypnobirthing Australia techniques - a deep state of relaxation is also wonderful for baby.
Do you have other bonding activities you do?
There are so many fun things to do and they all work towards creating a wonderful connection between Mum, baby and partner 🥰

The realisation that you have created this whole new little person with your best friend, Rhiannon, Hayden & baby Remy ❤️
Yeah, I am talking to you
I see you and appreciate your likes, comments, sharing, tagging etc.
Without you I wouldn't be able to do what I love. Thank you for supporting me and my business!
I am so grateful for every client who refers me or chats about me to their friends. Word of mouth is the strongest form of advertising and I am super grateful.
A Mothers Touch, Jade and Alec ❤️ Have you booked your newborn session yet? It is best to book whilst still pregnant to avoid missing out as spots each month are strictly limited.

Just some more cute baby expressions for your Tuesday morning😜
Newborn photos dont always have to be a gallery full of sleepy images, although these are super cute and you have more variety with props and poses because they arent bothered when in a deep sleep, I also like to embrace my awake shots.
Babies are extremely unpredictable so before each newborn shoot I dont over plan it as it could all go completely different depending on how baby enters the studio.
My main goal is to keep baby happy, warm and comfortable that way we can produce a nice gallery for mumma regardless if they're asleep or not.

Sharing is caring
I'm pretty sure this saying has been used for as long as I can remember,
and I think it works,
But not with ice cream. That is where I draw the line.
No sharing of ice cream. Ever.
Appreciating the simple things ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve been here for 3.5 months now and time has gone by so fast!
I’m really enjoying discovering hidden gems in Perth and am always on the look out for more fruit picking spots for July and August. Do you know of any? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Leave me a comment with some of your favorite local spots

Keeping it real
I’m looking forward to working through a few personal things this year. Attitude, mindset and other aspects that I think are fundamental in living a healthy and happy life,
Are there any books you would recommend reading that have made an impact in your life?
I’d love suggestions!

I’ve seen a ton of activities and festivals on in Perth the last few days. Winter fest in Fremantle,
Ice skating at Elizabeth Quay
Any fun activities happening this next week?
Sarah & Arielle // Mother & Me "When I think of what it was like to have a best friend as a child I always think of my mother.
The amount of love I have for my daughter is second to none, I tell her she’s my best friend all the time. And she tells me that she loves me.
Captured moments spent together at this age or any are so important. One day these are all she’ll have to look back on to remember me and my heart warms to know that in those moments when she does she’ll remember her first best friend... Her mother x"

Apologies for being MIA for a while, I was busy having this sweet little girl.✨✨ So here she is, little Ophelia Wren! Born on the 28th of June 2019. We are so in love. But more about her in a while. ✨✨ Instagram and Facebook takeover this morning by @peteholodnyj:
We are still alive! Exhausted but alive. We’ve not posted for around a month, just whilst we’ve been adjusting and enjoying some time with our sweet new daughter. You might have been following Karin’s pregnancy blogs over the last few months and we’ve concluded them with one that I’ve authored as we felt this one might be better written from my own point of view, as an (active!) observer.
We hope you enjoy reading it ( the link to the post is in the bio) and that it might provide a slightly different perspective. Let us know if it any of it rings true for you.
Once Karin has gathered her thoughts and processed her own experience, she will be sharing with you all, so keep an eye out for it in the very near future.

A baby girl has arrived!! I can’t wait to photograph this new family of 6! 💗🥰
Did you know that I have a range of maternity dresses available to all of maternity clients? Included in the sitting fee.
This new silver addition to my maternity wardrobe is gorgeous especially against the white in studio ❤️
You can wear it multiple ways but this way (off shoulders) would have to be one of my favourites.
I also have it in wine red and deep purple that you have probably seen during past sessions outdoors.
I recommend doing your maternity session between 32-35 weeks before you get to that uncomfortable stage and recommend booking at least a month in advance as some months are super busy.
See my website for more details

If this doesn’t make you smile than I don’t know what will! I think it’s safe to say we had a great session today 💙
Live for today
I get in the habit of planning ahead so much I sometimes worry I don't make the most of right now and live enough in the present,
I know mums always say their kiddos grow up so fast and I remember seeing that with my nephews. You blink and they big. I wish they stayed smaller for longer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you feel the same?
Spent yesterday in bed feeling a bit fluish, luckily didn't have any sessions scheduled otherwise would've had to reschedule, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But feeling good today and the weather is forecasted to be okay. Trying to figure out what to do this weekend. To shoot or not to shoot. To have fun exploring Perth or work on my business,
Maybe I can try and squeeze in all of the above,
So friend, what are you up to this weekend?

Do you sometimes feel that life is a bit hectic?
My days sometimes feel like a blur, weeks and even months,
I’m trying to figure out how to slow it all down.
I find if I make time to enjoy outdoors by going for a walk or to the park etc that helps,
Yoga and Pilates helped when I did that but it’s been a while,
How do you try and slow down your days?

Surrounded. There’s not much chance of this little one ever feeling unloved! THIS is what I mean about a legacy image. It only get more and more special and important as time goes by.
Exist in photographs. Exist TOGETHER.

And it’s a WRAP!! 2018 has been a big year, a year of new challenges, accomplishments, failures & personal growth!
The highlights, my baby became a toddler, I grew another little human we will soon welcome, and our family is now stronger than ever 💙
Going into 2019 & most importantly is to be the best I can be as a mother & wife for our family. I have many health resolutions, & I hope to begin a Pilates/yoga course thats been on my list for awhile! I look forward to continuing to grow personally & I’ll be launching a blog so I can continue to connect with you all that little bit more, my insta family 🖤
Here is to an amazing 2019!
Happy New Year to y’all 🎉
